Projects While on the Hard

Just bought boat. The yard is doing a bottom job and rudder pintles but has run into a delay due to scheduling. The boat will be on the hard for two weeks. What additional projects can I accomplish during this period? Replace through-hulls, if needed, but what else should I be looking at?
Survey didn't really point out any additional areas.
Your thoughts?

I usually detail/polish the hull. It so much easier on the hard than at the dock.

Re: Projects While on the Hard

well, what kind of boat?

Perhaps pull the shaft and have it checked for true. Have the prop tuned up. Replace cutless bearing. R&R seacocks.

wash and wax it. and everything already listed. again check all the thru hulls, valves and hoses. Charge the battery. check the running lights.
That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.
